4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and sick! 30 Nov. 2004
By Carl Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This one really creeps up on you. Tom Moran delivers thoroughly entertaining, genre-bending blend of humor, mystery, and--oh yeah--plenty of horror. Following the exploits of the comically inept, but lovable, John Smith, the novel deissorients and shocks its readers as it descends from comfortably humorous to grotesquely horrific. Be warned: this has one of the most graphic climaxes out there. With the exception of some poor editing by the publisher, this is an excellent debut.
5.0 out of 5 stars Acquired Taste$ by Tom Moran 7 July 2004
By Marilyn R. Horowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a knockout of a first book and quite appropriately titled. You are pulled into the story from page one and you won't be released until the last page - I read it in one afternoon! There's a canine in this story named Unique and all I can say is You Go Girl! If this first book by Tom Moran is any indication of the level of his storytelling and creativity, I've got just one question - hey Tom, when's your next book coming out? Read this book - you're going to love it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Read 17 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was very intriguing. It covers a variety of genres, including horror, suspense, comedy, and romance. Mr. Moran does a good job developing chracters and proceeds to weeve a great story. It's definitely a book you can't put down until you're finished with it. Mr. Moran also uses the story to explain (presumably) his philosophy on money and it's ill effects on personalities. It was a great read and I look forward to more novels from Mr. Moran.
5.0 out of 5 stars Frighteningly Intriguing 21 May 2004
By Christopher M. Bowen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Acquired Taste$ is an exceptional thrill-ride of suspense and horror; an incredible debut. The author does an excellent job in capturing the reader's attention from the start. The story is strong and intriguing, which only adds to its already disturbing believability. An excellent read.
